Villagers - Set The Tigers Free tab

Artist: Villagers
Song: Set the Tigers Free
Album: Becoming a Jackal

This is just the acoustic guitar part, the electric part isn't included, but could be 
easily worked out. I can't name some of the chords at the moment, so if you could leave whatever 
names you know in a comment, it'd be much appreciated! Standard tuning.

The X's on the low E string are percussive slaps made by the thumb of the right hand, at 
regular time intervals. This string is being muted by either the thumb or another finger that's 
fretting the chord on the left hand. The chords should be strummed with the rest of your hand.

The strumming pattern is DU-slap-DU-slap

-------------------------------------------------------------------- Lyrics: V1: Farewell to my only friend You've been so good to me Now the carnival has ended Let's set the tigers free V2: The spring was always early And the winter never came But since I got this hunger It just hasn't been the same C1: I'm leaving for the great wide open plains Leaving while this holy spark remains I see you've written promises to make me stay But it really doesn't matter now anyway I'm leaving V3: True love feeds on absences like pleasure feeds on pain So no matter where I'm standing I still love you all the same And I hope you feel the same way when its your turn to disappear I'll be cheering from the sidelines with a sandwich and a beer C2: I'm leaving for the great wide open plains Leaving while this holy spark remains I see you've written promises to make me stay But it really doesn't matter now anyway I'm leaving V4: And all at once I step outside into the wind and rain I let it wash my weary eyes and see you do the same (And all at once I step outside into the wind and rain I let it wash my weary eyes and see you do the same) C3: I'm leaving for the great wide open plains Leaving while this holy spark remains I see you've written promises to make me stay But it really doesn't matter now anyway I'm leaving
